Now that EGX 2018 has come to a close for another year that leaves us with one more task to wrap things up nicely; rounding up the EGX 2018 games list. It goes without saying that the big games of 2018 made an appearance with all the bells and whistles, I mean Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Life Is Strange 2 and other massive titles were there of course. But how about the games out there that are perfectly great to play but haven’t had their moment in the spotlight yet? That’s the games were’re giving some attention here.
Let’s not delay any further, here’s our EGX 2018 games list of titles you won’t want to miss.

You play a disgraced lieutenant detective in Revachol West, a shore town where corruption’s out of control, murders go unsolved, and the kids just wanna dance.

Last but not least on our EGX 2018 games list. Human: Fall Flat is an open-ended physics based puzzle game in which you take control of builder Bob helping him resolve the mysteries behind his recurring dreams of falling. Your goal is to escape those dreams full of puzzles, dangers and surprises using everything you find in the levels. The world of Bob dreams is built on his daily experiences, hopes, fears and memories interweaved in a net so sticky and hard to escape. All this mess is actually a carefully crafted work of… wait! You are the one to find it out! Bob is a human. Just a human. No hero. Zero superpowers. Period. Bob is more handy than he’s handsome, but latter would not help much in:
- pulling the stuff around
- pushing the stuff with hands
- pushing the stuff with feet
- carrying the stuff
- climbing the stuff
- breaking the stuff
- using stuff to interact the other stuff
Our EGX 2018 games list favourite
We’ve shown you just a handful of some of the great games we saw and played at EGX 2018, we think they had good reason to appear on our EGX 2018 games list but we wanted to select which one we’re looking forward to playing again most. As a fan of games that think outside of the box, for me it has to be Willow Brooke Post for PC. I mean who wouldn’t want to work in a post office, open someone else’s mail? You know you’ve always wanted to!
